Paying taxes on tournament poker winnings
If you cash (receive any form of payment) in a poker tournament in the USA, you have to pay 30% tax on the net profit. For example, if you buy-in for $10,000 to play in the WSOP Main Event at the Rio in Las Vegas and then end up winning $10,000 (actually you broke even), the casino will hold $3,000 out of the $10,000 (the gross winnings) and you will get $7,000 back.

Phil Hellmuth - Man on a Mission at the 2005 World Series of Poker
Phil Hellmuth is one of the biggest stars in poker and he knows it.

Phil hasn't won many major tournaments in recent years, although I suspect that's mainly because he's been busy with poker related business. For example, he represents online poker room UltimateBet.com. For more Phil Hellmuth trivia, keep reading today's blog.

My First WSOP Tournament Experience, Part I
Friday, June 10, 2005, marked the first time I ever played in a WSOP event, the $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em tournament.

Erik Seidel came out on top and finally won this event last night, but this is how the tournament unfolded for me.
